Did Covid-19 rescue the EMMYS? | TV Bingebox S01E28

So much could have gone wrong and somehow didn’t.

With a global pandemic on our hands and seeing the Logies get cancelled we thought we’d never get to enjoy an awards show again. How wrong we were! The 72nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards managed to do the impossible and pull off a massive outside broadcast with celebrities all over the world, and host Jimmy Kimmel live from the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. INSANE! There’s lots for your Bingeboxers to talk about this week – not just the technical but also the (lack of) red carpet, the nominees, and the winners. RECORDS AND ALL!

Join Jo, Dan, Brooky and Molk as we give you some great tips, hints on shows to watch and those to give a wide berth to as we land squarely in the TV Bingebox!

In this episode we cover off:

  • For our #GroupBinge this week we went deep on THE EMMYS (FOX ARENA) and talk about it all… and we don’t leave miss a botox-filled minute or alpaca-infused moment;
  • Brooky surprises us all as he delivers a #Rewind to we were surprised we forgot – DEUTSCHLAND ’83 (Stan); and
  • Our Clap or Slap shows (ones we’ve been loving and others we’ve had the misfortune to watch), include: Des (Stan), Criminal UK (Netflix), Love Fraud (Stan), Raised By Wolves (FOX SHOWCASE), The Vow (FOX SHOWCASE), Halifax (Nine), The Translators (theatrical), The Social Dilemma (Netflix), Ambulance (Ten), Ratched (Netflix), Away (Netflix), Arthur Miller: Writer (Binge), On The Basis of Sex (Binge), 60 Minutes (Nine).
